FedEx Returns

With FedEx® Returns, you can create and print a return label and include it in the original shipment to your recipient. You can also email a label to your recipient. The recipient can then apply this label to the return package as needed and drop the package off at a FedEx drop off location. No charges are assessed until the label is used. In addition, a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) reference field (printed on the label and your invoice) is available to help you track your return shipments.
